Apr-19-17  paavoh: A short King walk in the end, and the game was a walk-over. Uncharacteristic play from Korobov.

  whiteshark: it seems that as early as <5...Nbd7> is critical:

Apr-19-17  Troller: 5..Nbd7 is rare and probably not very good. Sutovsky took 6 minutes to reply 6.g4, and another 6 for 7.g4. Apparently Korobov had not anticipated this, as he took more than 20 minutes to play 7..a6, having been in prep till then.

But Black remains cramped with pawn-e7 not getting anywhere until 21..exf6 which also seems to be a mistake, opening up files against his own king.
